London Irish can confirm Sekope Kepu has left the club due to personal reasons.
Kepu outlined the nature of his predicament to Director of Rugby, Declan Kidney, over recent weeks and this weekend confirmed that he felt he had no option but to return to New Zealand citing personal family health reasons – which will remain private – for his decision.
Declan Kidney said: “Whilst we are desperately disappointed, in these unprecedented times, we understand the human element of Sekope’s situation.
“We wish Sekope and his family well – and thank him for his contribution to the club.”
The club will be making no further comment.
